Debate Camp's day program suits campers in grades 5 - 10. All instruction is levelled according to camper age and ability. All day camp locations have all 3 program components, for all ages: Debate, Public Speaking and Model United Nations. See our PROGRAM DETAILS page for an additional overview of camp's program and our LEVELS page for guidelines used at all of our locations: 

LUNCH:  

At all Debate Camp locations, campers bring a BAG LUNCH each day.  Campers must ensure their lunch and snacks are NUT FREE. No snack / lunch sharing is permitted.  All lunch materials along with personal water bottles are to be returned home with campers at the end of each day.  

INFORMATION  UPDATES:   

We keep in touch with all of our camp families both in advance and during the camp session.  Parents / guardians receive a confirmation email immediately following registration.  A second email detailing pick-up / drop-off instructions, and any required health forms / health protocols will follow 1 month in advance of your registered camp.  During the week, pictures and daily updates are posted on camp's FACEBOOK PAGE.  At the end of the week, a card that shares some of each camper's individual progress is available to parents / guardians and campers.  

 

 

Debate Day Camp is exceedingly popular and most locations fill to capacity.  In keeping with our 1:8 staffing ratio most camps are only able to fit in a limited number of campers. We recommend registering early!
